, there is this divide among -- there's even a divide among the culture in the united states senate where you have a johnny isaacson, a bob corker. >> they say let's vote. >> we're legislators. we're going to be conservative legislators but we're legislators. then you have a new strain of the republican party, this new crowd that's gotten in there that says, no, you know what, government gets too big when it does anything. whatever. legislating is bad, period. >> don't even debate. >> yes. >> it looks to me like the 29, following up on your thought, a lot of these people like mitch mcconnell aren't born right wingers. howard was sit in that chair yesterday, howard fineman. he said all this thing going on with kentucky, whatever's going on, the taping of that meeting and everything was mitch mcconnell coming out screaming bring in the fbi because he wanted to show he was a real right winger and mad at the left. >> he was tough. it has united conservatives around him. conservatives, the enemy of my enemy is my ally. this is survival. the fact of the matter is, chris, he saw what happened. his own gu

the united states senate and the congress unanimously passed a measure to bolster mental health reporting requirements on background checks. some states like mine, texas, have received high marks for their compliance but many states have essentially been noncompliant and the department of justice has failed to adequately back up implementation of the law so essentially the law that we passed in the wake of the virginia tech shootings that require reporting of people that are judah kate at mentally ill in their respective states is not working the way it should. rather than just string along and ineffective program i think this is a wonderful opportunity for us to fix fix it and we shod fix fix it. i want to say just a word though about symbolism versus solutions. i am not interested in congress voting on a measure that would have no impact on the horrific violence we have seen in recent months. i am not interested in a symbolic gesture which would offer the families of the sandy hook shooting the old real solutions that they seek. to a person they told me they are not political, they don'

is something the senate almost never does before. here your illustrious united states senators are overcoming a filibuster to begin debate on a gun package today. to appreciate how crazy the filibuster was in practice, this was not a filibust over the bill, a filibuster of debating the bill. remarkably routine. what was remarkable was that the filibuster failed on the strength of support of most of the democrats and 16 republicans. only two democrats joined by 29 republicans in trying to block the debate, arkansas's mark pryor and alaska's mark begich. a deal was worked out between democrat joe manchin and republican pat toomey on expanding background checks. joe manchin, who is a gun positive democrat from west virginia with an a rating from the nra has been looking to make a deal like this for months, ever since the massacre of sandy hook elementary school in december. he made it clear he wanted to work on gun safety not from republicans in the aisle but in the room at the negotiating table. he was pretty optimistic the nra would cooperate. >> i want to call our friends at nra and bring the
hard to elect a democrat to the united states senate from kentucky. we haven't had one since wendell ford back in the late '90s. so it's going to be very hard for them to run anyone statewide and especially after this. this does lead to -- let's put it this way. it makes mcconnell look very, very negative and nasty and if that's the case, you know, he's going to have to own up to that at some point. history does not judge senators and politicians who go after people's personal lives very well in the future. >> jimmy, one of the men that conway identified is a guy named sean reilly. said he was just witness the other activist had been more involved in this. although conway alleges he was not involved but not returned calls to nbc news because there's been no corroboration to this story we won't report the other person's name. how par for the course is this just in how terms dirty the nature of political campaigns can get. >> if you recall, remember nixon went after mcgovern in his first pick for vice president for the nomination because eagleton had mental illness, et cetera and mcgov
